She might play an evil queen, but Charlize Theron is all about being a good mommy.

The 36-year-old Oscar winner, who plays the nefarious Queen Ravenna in the upcoming Snow White and the Huntsman, celebrated her first official Mother's Day with adorable baby Jackson, whom she adopted in March.

Queen Charlize looked anything but evil when she sat down with E!'s Giuliana Rancic to discuss her upcoming film at the SWATH press junket in London, but the conversation quickly turned to babies when these two mama's started talking.

"My mom and Jacks are here with me. We had a nice morning, he got to spend a little time with me and he got to have a little snuggle," Charlize revealed. "I'm going to see them later tonight, it's really nice to have him here."

It's no surprise the actress can't stop smiling—between her highly anticipated film and new baby boy, Charlize's personal and professional life is certainly at a peak.

Giuliana, who is expecting her first child via gestational surrogacy, swapped motherly stories with the actress, and couldn't help but ask Charlize whether motherhood is everything she expected:

"It's strangely everything that you've hoped for and it feels so right. I don't know how else to say it," Charlize gushed. "I feel like I can't remember anything prior to him, I feel like it was always just meant to be what it is."

Can't you just feel the love this mama has for her baby boy? And the heart-melting didn't stop there:

"It's an overwhelming sensation of love that I think every mother tells you," Charlize explained. "There's almost a moment where I feel like I can't remember anything prior to him I feel like it was always just meant to be what it is. Everyday I'm just like ‘It's not possible to love you more' and then 20 minutes later your like ‘Oh my god! How is this possible?!'"

All together now: Aww. Both Giuliana and Charlize are just meant for motherhood! Perhaps we can predict an A-list playdate in the future?

"Is it the best thing you've ever done?" Giuliana asks.

"Yes," Charlize said without any hesitation.

Congratulations, Charlize! We wish you and Jacks all the best.

And with that, Happy Mother's Day to G, C and all the loving moms out there!
